It is the reflection of the light source. In your case, I assume you have:

The term parallel does not mean that the light source becomes a wide,
flat, surface. It remains a point light and is reflected as such.
Parallel only means that the incident light rays on the surface from a
very distant source are parallel, like for instance Sun light. See:
